    Touchdown Jesus Hit by Lightning, Burns to Ground

    Since good ol' Touchdown Jesus (aka Butter Jesus and That Thing in Ohio) has been the source of much discussion here over the years, I thought some of you would enjoy this:

    I will bet anything they rebuild it, only it will probably be bigger, as they will probably get loads of donations. Maybe they will get the whole body this time, which was their initial plan.

    I heard this around 7:30 this morning; two minutes later I heard the first joke. I'm up to about 15 of them already.

    That's quite ironic, isn't it?

    Btw, isn't it proof that there's no God?

    Now, now, no hasty assumptions.

    We have to see if it rises from the dead three days from now before we can make any conclusions.

    Bob and Tom (morning DJs) think God was aiming for Larry Flynt's Hustler Club down the road and missed.

    It could be proof that God exists and that He does not like tacky statues...

    True, because God doesn't miss.

    Oh my gosh, I saw that thing for the first time last November. I'm a Christian, and IT SCARED ME.

    Who wants to bet it'll be rebuilt as quickly as possible?

    My Abrahamic Faith Tradition 3.0 says this is the correct answer. Also, down with the idols!

    My favorite "Touchdown Jesus" is on the Univ of Notre Dame campus.In the obvious field of vision of the football stadium...certainly not as....um...."rustic" as the lightning fodder, though.

    Both of these.

    I have to admit, I laughed when I saw this on the Weather Channel this morning. My husband is now positive I'm headed to hell....there were doubts before this.

    Does that mean that I have to get rid of my inflatable Tina Louise (Ginger, on Gilligan's Island) doll? http://ralphspubilliniclub.com/image...2002-11-07.gif

    I had never heard of this statue before so I had to look it up to see it before the strike.
